MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a team-high 29 points to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a comeback win over the Chicago Bulls Tueday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Bucks trailed 29-20 after one quarter and rebounding was the deciding factor to that point in the game. It still ended a 57-40 edge in favor of Chicago, but Milwaukee forced 17 turnovers, most of which came in the third quarter. Chicago also held the advantage in free throw percentage, at 79.2 percent, compared to 60.7.

Antetokounmpo was 10 of 14 from the field, and although he struggled for most of the game at the free throw line (9-17) he made the ones that counted down the stretch.
“I was just trying to be aggressive and make plays” Antetokounmpo said.
Jerryd Bayless was inactive for Tuesday’s game, missing his fourth straight game with an ankle sprain. It’s unclear if he’ll be available for Wednesday night’s meeting with the Washington Wizards. That one tips off at 6 p.m. CT from our nation’s capital.
